Fall is definitely in the air in Arizona!  I am enjoying working with the Swan Lake paper pack from CTMH - the featured paper for October.  You can see in the two cards above the rich fall colors in the papers.  You will make ONE of these cards - you will decide in class which stamp set you will use to complete it.

The Swan Lake papers also offer some softer colors in their palette.  The Christmas card below also uses the Swan Lake papers, and the October Stamp of the Month - Yuletide Joy. 

One more fall card - actually, a Thanksgiving card.  I couldn't resist these cut little squirrels, and combined them with our technique for the month - using an embossing folder, but not embossing with it!  Come to class to find out what we are doing!
Finally, we will use the City Sidewalks paper.  While it will be featured in November, I jumped the gun a bit and combined our little Surfin' Santa and some trees with the bright Christmas colors in this paper pack.  Don't worry, we'll still work with it again in November!  As with the Swan Lake card, you will make ONE of these designs, deciding during class which images you want to use.

Class dates are:
Saturday, October 1
Monday, October 3
Tuesday, October 4
Thursday, October 6

Cost for the class (which includes everything to complete 4 cards) is $20.
All classes meet at 9:30 in my craft studio in Prescott Valley, Arizona.
Not in the area? You can get a kit mailed to you for an extra fee!

Christmas Card for Mojo Monday #467

Can you believe it's time to start working on Christmas cards!  Of course, I heard on the news this morning that some one million people already have their Christmas shopping done, so maybe I'm a little behind! 

I used a variation of the Mojo Monday sketch to create this card for my October Stamp Club classes.  I love the sparkle of the shimmer trim and the embossed star image.  The detail in the stamp is great - and I didn't want to get caught up in trying to color it - so thought embossing it would be the easiest thing to do.

Here's the items that I used - all from Close to My Heart:
Swan Lake paper pack (X7212B)
White Daisy and Glacier cardstock
Yuletide Joy (S1610) - October Stamp of the Month
Mini Christmas (M1152)
Silver shimmer trim (Z1799)
Ranger Silver Super Fine embossing powder (Z2067)
Confetti Stars embossing folder (Z3119)

Be sure to pop over to the Mojo Monday blog and check out the other great cards made with this sketch!

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you have a great weekend.
